Re: Custom views (custom search filters + result appearance and order)

Thanks for considering :) Changing the sort order via the search is in development, so you could include something like the following in your filter's search: sort:size-descending Nice. I suppose all the requested features could be implemented into the search syntax. E.g. Text-color:green , column:N...

Custom views (custom search filters + result appearance and order)

Add a custom views feature The custom search filter feature is already very useful. But I'd like to be able to customize both the results and the view, appearance and order of the results and other features of the window. Each custom view could include any of these: 1 custom search filter parameter...

Re: Syntax of functions

Funny. Was just thinking about it and came up with the same idea! :) As long as it ends the autofill when I type ":\" (I use that a lot: :\TEMP to only get the rootfolders TEMP) :) I hope an autosuggest feature could be made compatible with that use case. - Sublime (editor) uses Ctrl-P to open a "q...

Re: Syntax of functions

I understand the frustration with having to type function: I'll be reviewing auto complete in Everything 1.5, and also adding support for customizing the main UI so you can have a size bar, date modified bar etc.. Maybe starting a search term with > could show a list of functions.. Allowing the use...

Re: Filter "light"

Adding a similar request here: in the Edit Filter window add a checkbox to disable a filter. Disabled filters should not be visible in the Search menu and should not react if the user types the macro. This makes it easier to manage many filters and test new filter variants without having to use dele...

Re: Filter functions

I'm sure this is extremely powerful and even "simple", but sadly it's not accessible to the "ordinary people" who never write a line of code and are used to intuitive UIs with cells to be filled in. :oops: Maybe this helps.

custom command: go to first file/folder in results

Feature suggestion: Add a custom command, and customizable keyboard shortcut, to go to (select and scroll to) the first file/folder in the results list. The shortcut could be a toggle: if the current selection is a folder then then jump to select the first file. And vice versa. With first file/folde...

Re: ES 1.1.0.1 Alpha Command Line Tool for Everything 1.4.1

Now I think it is caused by all the extra info that isn't (by default) in the database, like attributes. Index those and you will get results much quicker. Possible. I'll test that later. Though I guess that would lead to Everything itself indexing the disks slower. I hope the Everything dev, void,...

Re: ES 1.1.0.1 Alpha Command Line Tool for Everything 1.4.1

therube & notnull: thank you for also testing. Everything GUI is working from RAM, is not exporting all the detail that ES is. ES is exporting detail that is not in RAM, not in .db, has to go to disk to gather those details. Plausible. There is another , important difference between the outputs: the...

command line version of "file > export" to .efu

I request a command line option to do what "file > export" does in the GUI. The command line has a "-create-filelist" command but that is a very slow in comparison. When I do "file > export" on a SSD drive with search string "C:\" the save is immediate. When I do "-create-filelist" the command takes...

Re: Add Explorer like folder browsing in .efu index -- proof of concept: Everything Efu Explorer

Hi, I'm glad to hear that. And yeah some of my hotkey choices weren't so good. I guess the best approach is to mimic Explorer where possible. Alt+Up or Backspace for parent folder. Enter to navigate into a folder. Alt+left/right for back/forward. Plus one more to start/exit folder browsing mode. Alt...

Re: Add Explorer like folder browsing in .efu index -- proof of concept: Everything Efu Explorer

No love for this? I should add that the tool is merely a few extra hotkeys that make use of the "parent:" command and other built in Everything commands. These are its features: Press Enter or Alt+Enter or Alt+Right on a .efu file in Everything = start efu browse mode In efu browse mode: Alt+Enter =...

Add Explorer like folder browsing in .efu index -- proof of concept: Everything Efu Explorer

Everything is great but, like some others in the forum have already requested, a mode to browse folders like in Explorer could be useful. Especially when indexing discs or drives to .efu file lists. With such a folder explorer mode Everything could replace some standalone disc cataloging tools. Soun...
